Para Ordnance 8 + 1 Round Stainless Single Action 45 ACP w/F
by Neil C Date Added: Thursday 10 July, 2008
This is an exceptional pistol! I have never owned a 1911 style handgun previously, having owned several Glocks in .40SW and a 9mm Ruger Model P89. I think I have bought a superb example of this classic 1911 firearm and I am very impressed with the quality and accuracy of this gun. My best group of 10 rounds of 230Gr FMJ was just over 1 inch at 10 yds, which impressed me. I could also repeatedly hit a 12-15 inch dia steel gong at 50 yds for ~7 out of 10 shots by holding a litlle high, which is better than I can get with my G22. I chose the single stack 1911 version, as it fits my hand more easily than the double stacked pistols that Para Ordnance manufactures.

The only problems I had were one failure to feed on my second string, but I believe that this was due to the initial tightness of the slide etc and then the Cocobolo grips actually came loose after 150 rounds, which was a surprise, but I tightened them back up and have had no issues since. I think they were simply under-torqued to start with. Overall I am very impressed with the quality of my purchase and I would recommend Para Ordnance to any else who wants to buy a quality handgun.
